Resurrection Power

Resurrection Power

Jesus in the center of this holy week floods over me with a hope like no other—assurance of an almighty victory--determined before the battle began.

"You will not grieve like people who have no hope."

1 Thessalonians 4:13 NLT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The natives of the Fiji Islands have a hopeless custom known as "calling to the dead."

The one who has suffered the death of a loved one climbs to a high tree or cliff.

He mentions the name of the deceased, and then cries out desperately,

"Come back!  Come back!"

The eerie echo of grief fills the air.

Those who have suffered the loss of their soul mate, companion,

or beloved child can sympathize deeply.

The Christian does not need to climb to the top of a cliff,

because Jesus climbed the hill of Calvary.

You don't have to cry out, "Come back!" from a high tree, because Jesus cried out,

"Father, forgive them," from a wooden cross.

The resurrection power of Christ over death and hell brings a Christian--

hope in this life and the life to come.
